The Leaders in Polar Adventures
For three decades, Quark Expeditions® has been the leader in polar adventure travel, and 2021 signals the beginning of an unprecedented era in polar exploration.
Q the Ultramarine
2021 signals the beginning of an unprecedented era in Arctic exploration: the launch of Ultramarine. From flightseeing to heli-skiing, Ultramarine's never-before-seen adventure capabilities—including two twin-engine helicopters and 20 quick-launching Zodiacs—make it possible for you reach places once thought inaccessible and probe the mysteries of the Arctic more intimately than ever before.
Q the Adventure
Designed by Quark Expeditions to give polar adventurers unprecedented access to the hardest-to-reach places on the planet, Ultramarine is the culmination of over three decades of venturing beyond the predictable in polar exploration. Ultramarine features brand-new ways to explore spectacular polar surroundings:
Flightseeing: While polar landscapes are spectacular from the sea, they’re even more stunning from the air, a view enjoyed while seated in one of the two twin-engine helicopters.
Heli-Landing: Passengers will be transferred to a pre-selected Arctic destination to explore at their leisure.
Heli-Hiking: Our twin-engine helicopters will transfer passengers to the start of the most scenic hiking routes and pick them up at the end of the route.
Ice Sheet Experience: Passengers ascend high above the cascading coastal glaciers onto the immense polar plateau of the Greenland Ice Sheet and take in the immensity of this overwhelming landscape.
Alpine Kayaking: Our expert kayak guides will take passengers—by helicopter—to remote glacial lakes high in the upper alpine zones of Southern Greenland.
Mountain Biking: Our team has joined with seasoned local partners to identify world-class mountain biking routes through the stunning scenery of South Greenland.
Greenland Camp Experience: Local hosts take passengers on an immersive experience at one of the most exclusive camps in Greenland.
